Accountability - Divine Moments for Leaders
MY QUESTION for GOD
How can accountability help me avoid foolish mistakes?
A MOMENT with GOD
“You are a witness to your own decision,” Joshua said. “You have chosen to serve the Lord.” “Yes,” they replied, “we are witnesses to what we have said.”
Fools think their own way is right, but the wise listen to others.
If another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. Share each other’s burdens.
You may have some dark corners in your life—secret habits and private thoughts that you don’t want anyone to know about. If those hidden places were exposed in the spotlight of God’s truth, you would have to deal with them, even give them up. Accountability is answering to someone who asks you to give an account of your words, actions, and motives—even those you keep in the darkest corners. Accountability can be painful at the time, but the lack of it will destroy you in the long run. Your secret sins will eat away at your character and integrity until your reputation crashes down around you. Without accountability, you wouldn’t even see it coming. Determine now to find a wise friend or mentor to keep you accountable. Don’t let the darkness take over your heart.
